I have 4 vintage ads from 1947 to share today, all from a publication I own called ‘Illustrated’.
The vintage ads came from the November edition of Illustrated; the front cover has a picture of engaged couple Prince Phillip and Princess Elizabeth (Queen Elizabeth II) as shown below:
The 1st advert is for Bourjois cosmetics, a company that dates right back to 1863:
The next ad is for Macleans peroxide toothpaste:
The 3rd advert is for Mansion floor polish and shows 2 mice playing noughts and crosses on mum’s freshly polished floor:
This is a Christmas advert for W.H. Smiths which started life way back in 1792 as a small news vendors in London:
